"Bringing it to the Table." Andrea shares the agony of the Steven Seagal direct-to-DVD film Against the Dark. I borrowed The New Annotated Sherlock Holmes from Andrea and talk about how much fun it is. And John pushes two cool gaming web sites: Dragonsfoot.org and Pen and Paper Games.com.
Reviews. On "A Case for Books," Andrea reviews The Sacred Book of the Werewolf by Victor Pelevin and Mr. Gaunt and Other Uneasy Encounters by John Langan. On "The Comics Curmudgeon," David rips into the Wolverine movie and mentions some comics to keep an eye out for. Derrick's still-title-less movie review segment covers Star Trek. And on "Couch Potato Salad," I review the disappointing new season of Law and Order: Criminal Intent.
Then we close out with our last remarks and the "Pop Fiendish" segment, in which the Big O discusses the Star Trek phenomenon (doo doo doo doo doo) in light of the JJ Abrams film.
In addition, today kicks off "The Summer of the Rift," in which we do a new episode every week. We start with a Spotlight episode: "Music from the Rift 2009." Here we present music by fans about the types of topics we like to discuss on the podcast. The song presented include:
"Drop It" by The Element
"Sincerio Sinner" by Fast and Loose
"Stop Your Crying" by Lenny Lee (Lenny also created the music for The Dome, an audio series produced by and starring a bunch of Riftians)
"Concrete" by CrimZin
"Crayola" by Fear Called Living
"Runtime" by David Alexander McDonald (who is not only the Rift's Comics Curmudgeon, but also provides the Rift's musical bumpers)
"House on Pooh Corner" by the Boogie Knights (a band that features me on percussion, as you should all know *grin*)
